This is not possible to do unless your change Windows colour sheme. IF you want to have more control over how you display data ,you should use continuous form.

Which changes do I need to make in Windows?  How can I keep them constant when I move the software to another machine?  

Why should I use continuos forms over datasheet view, or vica versa?

>Which changes do I need to make in Windows?
To change colors:
in Win'95: Click anywhere on desktop,select Properties. Select Appearance Tab.
>How can I keep them constant when   I move the software to another machine?  
There is no way to do it unless you use the same color sheme,number of colors on each machine. Even if you do that , each user can go and change color scheme.
>Why should I use continuos forms over datasheet view, or vica versa?
IF you use datasheet view, color can be changed only globally for all applications.
If you use continuos view, you can have different color for each field and for each label if you want.

thanks,

  That helped.  When I asked the difference between Continous and Datasheet I meant other that the colours.  Just in genereal, I mean, you have so much more control in a continuous form (I just found out) than in a datasheet view.  Why would you want datasheet view?

may be for simplicity. If you just want to display basic information, you use datasheet.
